Book Review: Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson

When her parents are murdered, Tandy takes it upon herself to find the murderer, even if it’s one of her brothers…or herself. Kidzworld reviews Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson.

Death In The Family

The Angel family has always been a little strange. They have a “hyperrealism” taste in décor, they’re fabulously rich and the children have abilities that border on superpowers. But when the parents - Malcolm and Maud - are murdered in their bedroom, the children become the prime murder suspects.

Suspected of Murder

Their only daughter Tandy is determined to find out who killed her parents. She plays detective and snoops for possible clues. Could it be her emotional and artistically gifted twin brother who was looked down on by their parents; or could it be her younger brother Hugo, who has a physical strength well beyond his age; or was it Samantha, her mother’s live-in assistant, who knows far more about the family than she should.

Forgotten Memories

As Tandy investigates those inside and outside of the house, she discovers that there are many people with a motive for murder. Meanwhile, she’s starting to remember snippets of her past that were somehow removed from her memories…memories of being in love.

The Bottom Line

Confessions of a Murder Suspect is great teen murder mystery told from the perspective of a suspect. With large font and short chapters, it’s a fairly quick read. This book may conclude, but James Patterson leaves many loose ends, which will undoubtedly lead to a second book.

How To Upload a Photo:Yay! You have read this far, now its time to learn things. In this post, I will be teaching you how to upload a photo! :DDesktop: Okay, there are two ways to do this. You can upload from your albums, OR, you can upload from your profile picture.                   To upload from your albums, go to your profile and click on "my albums." Now, the system will tell you that you MUST upload a photo to an album. You have two options, you can create a new album, or you can upload to a previously made album. After you choose one of the two options, you need to click on the "choose file" button. You need to choose a file. But, before you upload, make sure your picture is appropriate and follows all of the KW rules! I recommend that you read the rules before uploading. Then after your upload, your photo will be taken to moderation where it will be approved or rejected.                      To upload from your profile picture, you just click a button that says upload. Then its really just the same thing.Mobile: Uploading for mobile is just about the sane thing except you need to press the three people in the right corner and then scroll down to my albums.Remember, when you upload a photo, if follows all of the rules. Do NOT upload a photo of a celebrity and say it is you! For ages 12 and under, sorry, but you may not upload pictures of yourself.
